Unmarried couples who split up will be given the right to make divorce-style claims for financial support from their partners, under final recommendations unveiled today.
The Law Commission has concluded that couples with children, or those who have been living together for a minimum period - they suggest between two and five years - should be able to seek most of the same financial remedies as people going through a divorce.

Partners would be able to claim lump sums, the right to live in the family home and possibly a share of their partner's pension, under the new rights recommended by the independent body which advises the government on law reform.
